By CTCN Staff

 Washita Valley Publishing has announced recent changes in the publication of the Washita Valley Community News with new expanded coverage.
 “Because of the current economic climate,’ said Wayne Watts, publisher and owner of the Washita Valley Community News, “we are forced to take steps to be able to continue publishing in Chickasha, Grady and Caddo Counties and surrounding communities”.
 The Washita Valley Community News will now be included in the Chisholm Trail Community News and available on news racks throughout the area at no cost.
 The Chisholm Trail Community News was established in 1994 in Duncan and reaches two-thirds of the residents in Stephens County by mail. Now the newspaper’s coverage extends into Grady and Caddo Counties. Residents can find the Chisholm Trail Community News on free news racks in Chickasha and throughout the area.
 “We are reserving special pages for advertisers, news and other events for Chickasha, Anadarko and other communities in the area. This will provide advertisers greater coverage and expose their goods and services to even more potential customers than previously,” said Watts.
 The offices of the Washita Valley Community News will soon be moving to a new location at 1005 South 5th and will be staffed by Conrad Easterday, editor and Tony Mosley, Advertising Representative. Deneva Chaney, graphics design will work remotely to provide excellent quality display ads in the combined publication.
 The phone number and contact information will remain the same. Those wishing to submit news items and/or need advertising service can contact us by phone, personal visit or by email at More news and information and advertising opportunities will be available at as well. Also, the entire printed paper is accessible online.
 Watts and his staff appreciate both the readers and supporting advertisers the past 21 years of producing the Washita Valley Community News. “We would welcome anyone who would be interested in purchasing the publication for the Grady-Caddo Counties,” commented Watts. “It’s a great business and fun to produce, but needs someone younger than me at this point.”
